A down and out football coach and single father, Steve Williams, is hired by an equally down and out Catholic college in New York.  Steve initially refuses the college’s offer, but accepts when a social worker arrives to investigate charges that Steve is neglecting his daughter, Carol.  Despite a win for the team using Steve’s questionable methods, things begin to go downhill when Steve’s ex wife shows up with her rich and influential new husband, threatening to take Carol away from her father.

Notes:

Director Michael Curtiz was the director for the classic film Casablanca.

James Dean appears as a football spectator in this film, although his role is uncredited.

The outdoor scenes of the college were filmed at Pomona College.  The football scenes were filmed at the Polo Grounds in New York, the field for the NFL New York Giants at the time.

Originally Trouble Along the Way was to be called Alma Mater.
